Any type of chips may be used in this recipe if you're not a fan of peanut butter cookies. Try semisweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or mint-flavored chips.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 C peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 C whipped ready-to-spread chocolate frosting
  • 1 (18 oz.) pkg. refrigerated chocolate chip cookie mix

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the peanut butter chips into a saucepan. Place the pan over low heat and, stirring constantly, cook for 5 minutes or until the chips have completely melted. Remove the pan from the stove. Stir the frosting into the melted chips until well blended. Allow the mixture to cool in the saucepan for 10 minutes. Place the cookie dough pieces onto an ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes or until set. When the peanut butter mixture has cooled, form it into 20 evenly-shaped balls. Remove the cookies from the oven. While the cookies are still hot, carefully press 1 peanut butter ball into the middle of each cookie. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then move to a wire rack to finish cooling. Makes 20 cookies.
